Nack. ioa_cfg->ipr_chip->intr_type gets initialized from the ipr_chip table
at the top of the driver which never sets intr_type to IPR_USE_MSIX, so this
will break MSI-X support for ipr. 

We indicate at the chip level only whether we want to force LSI or whether
we want to enable MSI / MSI-X and then try enabling MSI-X and fall back to
MSI if MSI-X is not available or does not work. We then set intr_flag to indicate
what we are actually using on the specific adapter.

Thanks,

Brian
